We have a new issue out! The May/June issue is full of colorful art, sweet stories, and good information. For the first time in 20 years, we've gone fully digital and hope you enjoy. There are several ways to read the new articles and to stay in touch with County Line and our ad partners that keep it coming your way.
Pages turn and operate most like you expect a magazine to work. The exciting thing about this format is the content is interactive. You will find links to websites and video and other attributes to make your experience enjoyable. You can also download the entire publication as a pdf.

All the articles in the new issue are grouped here for you to read each individually without having to shuffle through the whole website.

Summer’s gone without a sound
No more flowers on the ground
Where will you go to fight the storm

Will you leave before the fall
Take a chance and loose it all
Please take me with you if you go

Butterfly Butterfly fly away
Butterfly Will you die if you stay
One more day
Will your colors start to fade

Autumn’s skies have turned to grey
Blowing colder everyday
I hope you left before the show

While I’m waiting out the storm
You’re somewhere safe and warm
If I survive next time I’ll go

Butterfly Butterfly fly away
Butterfly Will you die if you stay
One more day
Will your colors start to fade

Celebrating F.H. Eilenberger
Born May 7, 1878, F.H. Eilenberger was a German immigrant who established a successful — and still operating — bakery in Palestine, Texas. He worked at bakeries in Galveston and Fort Worth before starting this company in 1898. Originally located on the corner of John and Oak streets, the operation was moved to the current site at 512 N. John Street in 1918. Eilenberger also lived there for several years. Thanks to continued management of the operations by his sons, his baked goods continue to delight consumers all over the world. Today the bakery is noted for fruit and pecan cakes, which are produced from a family recipe.

"Rainbow" by Kacey Musgraves
"It'll all be alright," says Golden/Mineola, Texas, native Kacey Musgraves in her beautiful song "Rainbow." In one of County Line's interviews with her, she said she keeps her songwriting simple and from the heart.

"I think you just say it like it is. If there’s a bowl of oranges on the table, just say that there’s a bowl of oranges on a table; don’t try to write it like it’s something elevated, but just write it from your heart," Musgraves says. "It took me a long time to get past what you think you should write because you hear it on the radio. The more time you spend with it, you figure out how to say things in different ways, and simple ways. The simple music is the hardest to write."
